If you're of an artistic temperament, someone who likes to create or to experiment, and you're also partial to blowing chunks of flesh off bad guys, Bulletstorm should be right up your proverbial alley. For those willing to go beyond the obvious, it rewards curiosity in the kill, something you'll be doing a lot of.
You'll be taking on the role of one Grayson Hunt, a wanted mercenary who is partial to the odd alcoholic tipple. Accused of heinous crimes and chased around the galaxy by his ex-boss, Hunt and his team of low-down interstellar desperadoes end up crash-landing on a pleasure planet that's now mysteriously deserted.
An action game with nobody to blast wouldn't be of much interest, so naturally appearances are deceptive and the planet's anything but deserted, full of ghastly plants and even ghastlier humans and mutants. Some will use crude mechanical devices against you, others are nimble and some are big brutes that use the traditional rushing in head first mode of attack.
